The former president of Senegal, Abdoulaye Wade, had to go public and deny the information published on the website of RFI (Radio France International).
At the age of 94, the former head of state was forced to leave a message to Senegalese people, through his official Facebook page, ensuring that he is alive and well.
“After the announcement of my death on the RFI website, following an informatic error, I want to ensure that I am in great shape. It is not given to everyone to be able to know of his death during his life. I take this opportunity to reiterate how important it is to check your sources before sharing information”, said the former president of Senegal.
